The LA Angels unfortunately didn’t have much of a shot to compete this year when considering the amount of injuries they faced.

They’ll be getting everyone back for next year, which should make for a great lineup and a very competitive team. They can even enter the season as one of the top contenders in the American League if they make the right moves this winter.

With the season over, it’s time to start looking into the biggest offseason questions for this team.

No. 5 biggest question of the offseason for the LA Angels: Which bullpen free agents are we going to go after?

The LA Angels need bullpen help desperately.

They had a 4.57 bullpen ERA this year, which is seventh-worst in the Majors. They were in the top ten in most walks per nine innings (4.04), and allowed a .245 batting average (seventh-worst in the game).

They have one of the best relievers in the game in Raisel Iglesias, but don’t have a ton of depth.

There are going to be a lot of great relief options on the free agent market this offseason. Kenley Jansen is available, Andrew Miller is available, and Craig Kimbrel could even be available if the White Sox choose to decline his option.

There are arms out there, and it’s just going to be a matter of if the Angels are willing to offer the right amount of money for the free agents.
